Fimbria Flowers

Please visit my tutorial “How to Release Machine Embroidery Fringe Without using Water Soluble Thread

Fimbria Flowers

Anyone who has been following my machine embroidery career knows that I love textured and three dimensional designs - especially fringe. When I saw this artwork I knew exactly what I wanted to make with it. I decided this time I would not turn it into quilts but rather cater to the non-quilters and at the same time spiffy up some of the things in my closet just begging for embroidery.
